 Oklahoma State at Kansas State

Gallagher- This is a must-win game for both teams if either have bowl aspirations. Both teams are coming off extremely disappointing games, and Kansas State at home is probably the safe pick. But you guys know I can’t pick against my Cowboys. 45-40 OSU

Peter- This game is tough just because both teams desperately needs  this win to stay afloat in the Big 12. I would say the Cowboys have the edge, but my gut tells me Alex Barnes is going to go off and lead the Wildcats to an upset victory during homecoming. 34-28 KSU

 Baylor at No. 9 Texas

Gallagher- Although they haven’t played anyone, Baylor is quietly 4-2 after a one-win season a year ago. Good progress in Matt Rhule’s second season. With that being said, Texas now has everything to play for and should show up at home against their in-state “rival.” 34-20 Texas

Peter-After a tremendous win over Oklahoma last week, does the Longhorns have an encore? Don't sleep on Baylor, they could give the Longhorns problem in the first half, but the Longhorns have enough fire power, led by Sam Ehlinger, to put away Baylor at home. 41-21 Texas

No. 6 West Virginia at Iowa State

Gallagher- Hmmmm. Iowa State is hosting an undefeated team at home for a night game. What could possibly go wrong? I’m taking Iowa State over a West Virginia team that struggled last week at home to Kansas. 27-24 ISU

Peter- This game has upset written all over it, but I’m not going to take the bait this time. Although, Will Grier needs to make better decisions with the football after throwing three interceptions last week against Kansas. It will be a hostile environment in Ames and Iowa State could pull it off like they did to Oklahoma last year. This game will depend on who will win the turnover battle. 27-14 WVU

 No. 2 Georgia at No. 13 LSU

Gallagher- No doubt LSU will play with a chip on their shoulder after a narrow loss to Florida in the swamp last week. In my opinion, LSU is as good as any team in the SEC (outside of Alabama) and will prove it this week. 20-13 LSU

Peter- This game will be a ‘dawg’ fight in Baton Rouge. I think LSU might have the slight edge not only because they are at home, but because their defense is darn good. However, Georgia needs this win more than LSU just because they haven’t been challenged yet in their conference. A win at Death Valley will be a signature win for the Bulldogs and would give them a spot in the playoff rankings. 17-14 UGA
